Silent People / Gente silenciosa / Gens silencieux

In English:

They are not talking (not even small talk) so much. Maybe silence is gold. You can meet them in Suomussalmi (Finland) when driving to the North.

En español:

Ellos no hablan tanto (ni la charla). Quizá silencio es de oro. Usted puede encontrarlos en Suomussalmi (Finlandia) al manejar vuestro carro al Norte.

En francais:

Ils ne parlant pas autant (même pas le papotage) Peut-être le silence est d’or.Vous pouvez les rencontrer dans Suomussalmi (Finlande) en conduisant au Nord.

  1. So, are the Silent People standing there all year, in all weathers? We have festivals here in Canada with scarecrow people and pumpkins, but your photos of so many silent people together are very different. They look like a huge gathering for a special occasion.

  2. Hello Jackiequeen. Yes, they are here around the year and they change their clothes twice (summer & winter) a year.

  3. So strange and bizarre. I wonder what the story is behind this – these silent people?

    • Hello Preston.

      Thank You for Your interest for this “curiosity”.

      They are work of art of dancer Reijo Kela. He got the idea. The local association of jobless people take care of changeing cloths. These figures has been also on display in England in Kent with four version with total numer of 400 figures.

      I am really glad that You saw these. This is something different one is used to.
